Fox host blames Obama for Orlando nightclub shooting before bodies can be recovered

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by one_voice (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Raw Story

Fox News host Tucker Carlson suggested on Sunday that President Barack Obama shared the blame for killings at a gay nightclub in Orlando because his administration had downplayed Islamic terrorism.

While investigators were still recovering 20 or more dead bodies from Pulse Nightclub, Carson spoke to counterterrorism expert Sebastian Gorka.

“All Americans have a role to play,” Gorka warned. “You must be aware you are on the front lines. Be alert and report anything that you see that is suspicious.”

Citing a recent shooting in San Bernardino, Carlson argued that President Obama’s administration had made America less safe by taking a politically correct view of Islamic-inspired terrorism.

Tucker Carlson was once a good-natured libertarian. Now, he sees everything in life through partisan glasses. The humor has been eclipsed by bitterness.

Condolences to victims and to families.

probability that fundamentalist beliefs were likely part of this killers MO in his anti-gay hatred, his access to an assault rifle, and the gay phobia that permeates society all contributed

The FBI believe the gunman, who was shot dead by officers, may have 'leanings to radical Islamic terrorism'.
But his father, Mir Seddique, told NBC News his son became angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami several months ago.
'This has nothing to do with religion,' he said. 'We are saying we are apologizing for the whole incident. We weren't aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country.'

its about any mentally ill person getting their hands on assault weps and high cap mags, the spark may be religion, hate, whatever their excuse is. These lone assassins cannot be stopped but we can make it much harder for them to get their hands on weapons of war.
